NOTICE - 21 April 2018
I wasn’t going to say anything as I’d hoped that I could deal with the current battle myself and my boy, “Mandela” are dealing with, without impacting on my work routine. But that has proven not to be the case and I fear the ensuing weeks may become even more difficult.
My precious, special boy - featured in the photograph above .... smart as a whip, a quirkiness that lends him the most beautiful, funny and very knowing personality. Together we have been through so many ups and downs. Even with his life-long auto-immune issues, which we’ve soldiered through and managed better than even the myriad of Vets could have imagined, he has always had my back, never let me down. We share a connection like no other and we understand each other with a depth that I feel is boundless.
Well, life has sent him, and myself, another curve ball, and it’s a cruel curly. Two and a half weeks ago he was diagnosed Osteosarcoma, with an estimated 6 weeks to live.
We are fighting. We aren’t going out without a battle. It will be the battle of his life, but quality of life for him will always be held paramount. It’s in his paws to let me know when he’s had enough, when he wishes to endure no more. And I will respect that, when the time comes. In the meantime we are treating this cancer with everything we can think of to make it afraid, hopefully make it retreat, but without having Mandela more uncomfortable than he needs to be.
Because of this, because of the dedication to my boy’s plight, I am finding that I am not responding to people’s enquiries as promptly as I normally do. I ask you all for your understanding and hope that you may forgive me the delays. And I appreciate your patience, with my apologies for the inconvenience.
